Hi,

In the RTE when we are linking to their respective pages. Every time I try to add a link, if I exit out and go to edit and open the dialog ,the hyperlinks get removed in RTE. Could anyone help me on this.

Thanks & Regards,

Kalyan

check browser console and error.log for any errors/warnings. Does that happen on an internal link or external link?

Validate linkchecker config for your project as well.

When you added this link in the Touch UI RTE - are you sure you clicked the Done button in the dialog. This saves the information.

Hi Kalyan,

I expect you are adding certain characters in the href attribute which your xss protection is not satisfying. I believe you might be getting error something like [1].

Please confirm.
